Celebrate 40 years of St Barnabas Hospice offering palliative care and support to the people of Lincolnshire

26th April 2022

From very humble beginnings of three nurses, with a vision to improve end of life care in Lincolnshire in 1982 – to what has become one of the region’s biggest Charities supporting more than 10,500 people each year.

The team behind St Barnabas will make this year one to remember with a bursting list of events, appeals and activities to get involved in and celebrate the incredible achievements of the people who have made the last four decades happen. Alongside the return of the Colour Dash on 14th May, the launch of locally produced, commemorative Rum and Gin and the beginnings of the first charity led bespoke community Art installation across Lincolnshire – The Heart Trail, St Barnabas Hospice will mark its birthday day on 11th June, with a blessing at Lincoln Cathedral.

All 25 shops, including the brand new, flagship Warehouse in Lincoln will embrace the birthday too and collectively celebrate their own achievements of resilience, against the high street giants. From Lincoln to Boston, and into the Wolds, our shops are representative of our care – they are part of the community and spread far and wide across the county.

Whilst we celebrate the past 40 years, we want to share our aspirations with you too.

We will talk through our ambitions to grow the services in the community to fulfil our vision where ‘everyone is Lincolnshire deserves a good death’, we will do this through offering Hospice at Home to hundreds more people each month, collaborating with other healthcare providers and educating others in how to make care for those at the end of their lives as well as further developing our wellbeing therapy services making it more accessible for all who need it. We want to rejuvenate our work and care spaces to offer the best facilities for everyone. We want to support our staff to feel happy in their roles, offer them career progression and a great work-life balance.

Finally, we will aim to maintain our outstanding CQC rating and educate everyone on the importance and benefits of Hospice care.
